During exhibition HouseofWisdom, 7 Hills Foundation is curating a series of events in collaboration with Framer Framed. The events are in line of the ParanoiaPhenomenon project, which researches daily fears and feelings of paranoia around privacy, from the perspective of visual arts and artists in public spaces. The series of encounters aim to broaden awareness about the digital privacy gap, and to reflect on how digital media have changed our ways of living and interacting with each other.

Paranoia Phenomenon event #1:
Open (your) data – Talk + workshop by Erdem Dilbaz

Within Artificial Intelligence (AI), we almost accept our privacy as open; as having no boundaries, as any machine needs to learn exactly how The World works without anything being unclear. In the next few years, we might see a world where tons of us feel comfortable in sharing all of our detailed personal information as if they were public domains. Erdem Dilbaz stands for Open Human (OH) – Open Human will be open for both internal acceptance of the self and external inputs of the environment. Is it imaginable that we will be set free by making our personal data public? These and more questions will be discussed with the participants of the event.

The talk is followed by a workshop by Dilbaz, in which we imagine what a world without privacy looks like –

Workshop: ‘Don’t think the future’:
It is time to think about possible scenarios, about a future where the whole of our personal information is open to the the public. Let’s think together about this future as realistically as we can. We are going to imagine a world without privacy, to try and reach a kind of utopian world. Or will it be a dystopian one? Let’s imagine the social order between humans in this world, what if your worth is to be dependent on how useful you or your data are for the society you live in?

Erdem Dilbaz is founder of Nerdworking. Nerdworking is a network project founded in 2009, focusing on research and development to provide unique tools for artistic, commercial, experimental and interactive media projects for public spaces. Nerdworking works on an artistic approach to technology, one mayor focus of their practice has been to and create awareness and tools for the use of the internet.
